LenderClose Expands Executive Team With New CTO

Des Moines fintech LenderClose today announced the addition of Martina Schubert in the key position of chief technology officer.

Schubert joins LenderClose with more than 25 years in information technology leadership experience. In her most recent role with DLL Financial Solutions Partner, a global leader in vendor finance, Martina was part of two executive leadership teams. Those teams were responsible for managing the enterprise-wide strategic and tactical planning process for information technology.

“The fintech sector is the birthplace of monumental innovation,” said Schubert. “Helping credit unions and community banks more fully experience the game-changing potential of technology, especially in the mission-critical area of real estate lending, is something I’m really looking forward to. By injecting speed and efficiency into the traditional process, LenderClose is making hometown financial institutions the best option for more people. That mission is very energizing to me.”

Schubert’s expertise spans several skill sets, including project management, team, and executive leadership, global vendor management and inter-departmental strategy development. Her professional achievements include driving customer retention and growth, improving loss ratio and delivering large-scale IT solutions. Schubert has managed budgets in excess of $14 million, as well as resources spanning multiple corporate segments. She has also created IT applications capable of reducing costs by millions.

At LenderClose, Schubert will make executive decisions that align technological vision with the company’s needs to positively impact current and future operations.

“A proven leader in developing and managing teams to execute strategic objectives, Martina has the skill and expertise to make a meaningful impact within the lending community marketplace,” said Omar Jordan, Lenderclose CEO and founder. “We are confident she will be a valuable member of the executive team, helping to shape a technical strategy that supports the LenderClose mission to keep lending local.”

Schubert earned an associates degree from Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC), a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University and an executive MBA from the University of Iowa’s Tippie School of Management.
